Kingston Eats: Grecos Grill & Wine Bar

I have been to Grecos for more than 5 times.  It delivers very solid and reliable Greek dishes.  They have the best lamb shank served in Kingston.  Huge portions for what you pay for, and food is very good.  I do like this restaurant although I do find the service a bit rude – waiters speak very fast and tables are often left unattended for quite a period of time.

My ratings: ❤❤❤❤
Price range: $$-$$$

0211 Taramosalata (Grecos)Taramosalata
A spread that is prepared with cod cavier, freshly squeezed lemon juice, vinegar and olive oil.
On the house with your bread and cracker basket at dinner time (not available at lunch).

0211 Spanakopita (Grecos)Spanakopita
Fine layers of phyllo with spinach & feta cheese
I was very pleased that it wasn’t salty as I find that to be a common problem with feta cheese.

1210 Dolmadakia (Grecos)Dolmadakia
Herbs with rice, wrapped in grape vine leaf with tzatziki

1210 Pork Souvlaki (Grecos)Pork Souvlaki
Cubes of marinated pork, skewered & broiled

0512 Mousaka (Grecos)Mousaka
Alternate layers of potato, sliced eggplant, ground beef, topped with cream sauce         

0211 Stuffed Trout (Grecos)Stuffed Trout
Stuffed with shrimp, crab meat and mushrooms

1210 Braised Lamb Shank (Grecos)Braised Lamb Shank
Special of the night, actually it always seem to be on the special menu but it’s not put on the regular menu.  Being slow braised for many hours, it is so tender that you don’t need a knife to pull apart the meat at all – it just falls apart.

0211 Milky way cake (Grecos)Milky way cake
Velvety smooth milk chocolate truffle and buttery smooth caramel are spread on each of the five layers of light milk chocolate sponge cake.  Coated with Belgian chocolate chips and a mixture of chocolate and caramel.

0512 Baklava (Grecos)Baklava
Paper thin layers of Phyllo pastry dough filled with cashews, almond pistachios are showered with butter and honey for a delicious Greek favourite.
